Saturday Photo: Spring Sun at Parc Saint-Viateur

Tonight we lose an hour as we change to daylight saving time. A little early in the year, if you ask me, but it is true that the days are getting much longer, and the sun is higher in the sky.

One of the down sides of warmer weather is the gray piles of dirty snow that emerge as the winter's snow melts, but this picture, taken at the edge of a park looking into it, shows only the lovely, smooth snow that remains in places.

Earlier the borough regularly cleared the snow from the pond for skating, and in the summer, the fountain in the middle will make a lovely noise on hot days. Now is an inbetween time with hints of what is to come, and reminders of what we've just been through.

A friend pointed out that the murky piles of decaying snow are reminders of how much cars and trucks pollute the city.

And then there are ALL the cigarette ends and piles of doggy feces.
